Columbus 320RS and JT's Strong Arms question

We picked up our new Columbus 320RS yesterday and today I have been installing the Strong Arms. I would like to know if there is someone who has them installed on a 320RS and has a picture of the rear set and could post it for me to see.

I would greatly appreciate it.

Cliff

Should be something close to this. Pick is from a Hartland RV forum.

Same Request

I have a 2014 320 rs and have installed the front JT Strongarms without a problem. The 320 came with pre-installed mounting points, however the set I purchased does not seem to have the correct hardware for the rear jack. I have the 6 point auto leveling system so it is very different than the picture previously posted. I have research on line without success, even though it states that it can be installed on this set up I cannot find instructions that verify the correct hardware. Does anyone have the JTs installed on the 320 and can provide a picture of the rear jack attachment, I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks

I have a 2013 320 rs with the four point auto leveling system with the rear mounted to the back auto levelers which are immediately behind the rear tires. The other end of the JT's are attached to a mount directly behind this on the frame.

Yes mine already has the frame mount, but I need to see how the other end is attached to the jack. The hardware that came with the package I purchased does not seem correct, and I am unable to find better instructions or pictures. Thanks

Though mine are four point levelers, they mount through a bottom leg hole just like the front. I believe on the six point it would attach to the bottom hole on the rear levelers. Sounds like you may have the hardware for the non leveler system. Go to pplmotorhomes.com and look at JT's pictures on their site.

Same setup here. I plan to use the factory rear mounts. The total length for each arm will be something like 8 feet long (the inside tube is just under 1" OD and I will find a substitute or extend the kit tube). I am hoping the angle from the factory mounts works in my favor and yields both fair lateral and front to rear stabilization.

Thanks to all who responded. I don't have the leveling system on mine. I used the pre-installed brackets, which are located in front of the stabilizers. I just wasn't sure I was putting them on correctly, but am now feeling more comfortable about it. Thanks again.

Results

I was curious from those Columbus owners that have installed the jacks themselves, how much of a difference in trailer movement did the JTs impact. Remove some of the movement, all, etc..?
